Berry alumnus Noah Stewart (17C) has spent the last two years working at Flexport.com, a data-driven freight forwarder and tech start-up, where he currently leads a team as their Marketing Development Manager. Through this role, he has been able to help serve his community through their nonprofit division, Flexport.org.
As a key player in the freight industry, Flexport was able to help fill the immense need for personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline responders across the country. Noah and his team stepped up to work on this project, helping to strategize, mobilize, and manage a PPE delivery program and fund.
To date, they have raised $8 million through a GoFundMe and delivered 217 million units of COVID-related items and supplies to frontline responders across the country, with partnership and support from celebrities like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Edward Norton, Tim Ferriss, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Jared Leto, Kim Kardashian, Ellen, and many more. The effort has made headlines in national news and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
